Carlo NAYA [1816 in Tronzano Vercellese – 1882 in Venice] was an Italian photographer known for his pictures of Venice including its works of art and views of the city for a collaborative volume in 1866. Naya was born in Tronzano di Vercelli in 1816 and studied law at the University of Pisa. In 1857 he opened his studio in Venice. Naya photographed not only city views, he also documented the restoration of Giotto's frescoes at the Scrovegni Chapel in Padua. Following Naya's death in 1882, his studio was run by his wife, in 1918 it was closed and publisher Osvaldo Böhm bought most of Naya's archive.
